Capt. Ray Stachelek reports:

The weather and temperatures seem to have seasonally moderated here in Southern New England. This consistent weather pattern has produced more balanced and predictable fishing results.

The best fishing in upper Narragansett Bay is all along the Port of Providence along the shipping channels. Fishing deep with chunks or live lining produced stripers in the 20 lbs. class using terminal gear. Fly guys are able to find scattered stripers from Sabinís Point down to the mid bay islands casting over structure. There is very little surface blitzing going on with the lack of silversides.

Captains Log: Two successful trips in the books

Mel Blake and Dave Pollack enjoyed great fishing conditions culminating with a trip to Block Island on Friday for their second trip. We were up on the crack of dawn, making the crossing to North Rip. Small sand eels are finally making their appearance to fly fishermenís delight. Casting conditions were perfect with a 5 mph southerly wind, outgoing tide, and a small ripple on the surface. We were able to release over a dozen stripers to thirty-three pounds mixed in with a half dozen bluefish. It was a great trip and a nice day to spend outdoors in a beautiful area with friends.

Dave Pollack continues to show his angling proprietary releasing this 33 lbs. striper on a bucktail streamer.

Capt. Ray Stachelek reports:

Finally there is some fishing improvement along the south shore ocean front worth mentioning and passing along. Itís no secret; the footballs are here fully inflated. Itís been one heck of a week. Weather has been perfect with just the right amount of wind speed for fly casting and blowing from the southwest all week. There was only one day out of the entire five days straight, the ablies refuse to bite in force, but they were present, frustrating us to no end. Anyone who knows about this albie fishery knows they get in this mode when they stuff themselves to the gills and work off their full bellies by blitzing the surface. The bait of choice, plenty of peanut bunker.

Captains Log:

Maria Ellis and Ted Rzepski from the Hartford Ct. Area were back in Little Rhody again this time chasing hardtails. Doctor Maria can now cross one more event off her bucket list catching her first albie plus many more. The morning started with some good schoolie action later displaced by albies. Ted mentioned, ďIt was one of the most enjoyable trips he has had with us. The reason, we were on albies all morning with few boats around due to limitation with fog. I have to agree, without all that boat motor noise of running and gunning, the fish and bait stayed intact for most of the morning.

Joel Kessler, Sumner Levine, and friend Frank from New Jersey, were on board Wednesday morning. The ocean was like a mill pond not a ripple in sight. You expect tuna fishing to be difficult approaching breaking fish under these conditions. We had our shots, but the bright, sunny, exceptional warm day took its toll. We did manage to find some later on in the afternoon that surprised us all. We did find stripers on pockets of condensed peanut bunker in a few shallow coves. That saved the day.

Dave Pollack and Ira Asher had a banner morning catching footballs on Thursday. Lot of hook-ups and long runs put the drags to the test. Ira introduced a slower retrieve rate which seem to be to their liking, really surprised me. The bass bite has been consistent during the dawn hours into the first hour of light. It is nice to see the stripers rebounding again showing some improvement in biomass.

Ted Rzepski returned with best friend Jerry on Friday again with the same magic as his previous trip. We had a couple of doubles, makes for many smiles and mayhem. Just watching each move around the boat ducking rods and moving around each other is comical. This trip had a nice mixture of bass and tuna.
